The fourth episode of Hawkeye is finally here and that means we are more than halfway through the new Marvel Cinematic Universe series. Luckily, Episode 4 turned out to be well worth the wait. In Partners, Am I Right?, Clint Barton and Kate Bishop continued to work together but the arrival of an assassin could change things for everyone! SPOILERS AHEAD, PROCEED WITH CAUTION!

Hawkeye Episode 4 didn't waste time in complicating things between Clint, Eleanor Bishop, and Jack Duquesne. Eleanor tells Clint to keep Kate out of his investigation then calls someone and tells them about the situation. Meanwhile, Clint learns from his wife Laura that Duquesne is actually the CEO of Sloan Limited which has been laundering money for the Tracksuit Mafia.

Kate deduces that Clint is Ronin while he asks Maya Lopez' lieutenant Kazi to convince her to cease her vendetta against Ronin. Clint later learns from Laura that the watch taken by the Tracksuit Mafia has been sending out signals so he and Kate track it down at an apartment that happens to belong to Maya.

Clint and Kate discover that Maya has been keeping tabs on Clint and his family and it doesn't take long before Maya shows up and attacks Kate. At the same time, Clint is attacked by a masked assassin.

It's an epic four-way fight where the fighters appear to be equally matched. However, Kate manages to injure Maya who escapes while Clint unmasks the assassin who turns out to be Yelena Belova. Kate gets ready to shoot Yelena but is unnerved when she shakes her head and jumps off the building to escape.
